From University Innovation
Ryan graduated from the University of Oklahoma with his masters in Computer Science in May 2015. During his 5 years, he worked on consulting roles with local companies spanning industries including medical information, book publishing, weather analytics and trucking. For his UIF project, Ryan spent time connecting multiple major colleges at Oklahoma resulting in the Innovation Hub at OU, a 25,000 square foot space for experimentation. The space was completed in Fall 2016, and now impacts students across all mahors at OU.
Ryan recently took on a new job as the head of inclusive design in Microsoft Office working to bring a culture of inclusivity to every designer, engineer and PM across Office. You can read more about it here!
Previously at Microsoft, he worked on developing the engineering systems that allowed Microsoft Office to scale to billion's of users in addition to supporting Microsoft's internal startup ecosystem. Some of the solutions he developed allowed internal startups to grow at a 10x rate from ~100,000 users to over 1 million users!
